What or who do you think of, when you hear "The Open Up and Bleeds"? Words like open up or bleed cause some grim thoughts. After intensive listening to the album, you just feel very enthusiastic about it. Enthusiasm about an album full of strength and passion called "An act of love and violence". What we got here, are four life-experienced men who got together in Stockholm in 2006. Together they created that what they represent with each and every song of "Open Up and...

Already on the forerunner, "Heaven Sin", the depths of human soul were fathomed, "O" goes even a step further. Darker, with more sex-appeal and a lot of twists and turns. The album pulsates between catching dacefloor-fillers, like "Purity" or "Haunt", and menacing, seducing and enigmatically fascinating moments of dark indulgence, which is carried by the vocals in songs such as "The Offering", "The Voyeur" and "Seethe"....

Bernie Bandicoot is an Ukrainian gothic rock group which was formed in late 2009, with Bernie (vocals, guitars), Deamon (bass) and Adrian Cain (drums). Their style of music is very close to early 80?s dark post-punk, it offers some new wave and classic rock influences, especially on the guitar work. The overall mood is romantic and melacholic. Barely Bernie Bandicoot celebrated the release of their debut album on afmusic, so the story of the band ends already. But this time not without giving...

It's been almost two years since defekt 86 released their album "Ultramarin". Finally now there's new material. Many may have thought, that there won't be any further releases anymore, in return this release seems the more interesting. The digital maxi-single "Suicide Hero" contains two songs: The title track is a loud uptempo song with the obligatory driving bass, noisy guitars in the refrain and electronic sound effects, which strain your ears quite hard, from time to...

The Swedish band The Search wraps catchy pop melodies into a gloomy cloak, creating escaping the daily grey routines. When the press is talking about The Search, they speak of a beautiful retro-mix of wave and rock in the vein of The Cure and Joy Division. The band does not deny their roots, but take pleasure in paraphrasing them in their own slightly deranged and atmospheric way. In order to achieve a wider musical range on their 4th album 'Saturnine Songs' they hooked up two diferent...

Four guys from the capital of Germany crossing the republic. For three voices, melody, shouting and bad-ass guitars are the frame those four create their dreams of. You have to live music for approaching things as Shearer do. Genius and madness coupled with megalomania, which is entitled such as for hardly any other band. The audience will expect a big rock album with 'Eve', but it also gives the necessary breaks for breathing, independent, catchy and diverse. The limited EP 'Adam' improves...

The band started performing in several Saint-Petersburg underground clubs, such as RED CLUB. But mostly, there were only small electrowave underground parties, as back then the band sound was close to electronic one. In 2005 the Quinsy experienced a lot of hardships and was nearly at the end, but eventually the new members and new sound contributed to the band’s complete revival....

Different producers and studios have been involved in the making of Basement Sessions during the last year. This has resulted in 4 songs with different identities but the vocals, lyrics and the emotional state in the songs are al the same. You will recognize the constant melancholy but somewhere around the corner happiness is in reach. The lyrics...
